Development of a streaming-fiber oil spill control system : stage II : modifications to large-scale model by R. L Beach ( Book )
2 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The large-scale model of the Streaming-Fiber fast current oil skimmer was modified to improved performance in waves and viscous oils. Modification included a sorbent foam belt rotation beneath the fiber array to intercept and collect any oil escaping from the fibers, and separate flotation for the fiber array to improve wave conformance by decoupling the array motions from the skimmer vessel. Testing indicated benefits from both of these modifications. The program involved small-scale foam capacity tests and small-scale model tests, as well as testing of the large-scale model atOHMSETT. A preliminary prototype design, utilizing the most promising developments of date, is included in the report. (Author)

A study of critical materials for the U.S. Coast Guard ( Book )
2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this study is to assist the Coast Guard in developing a systematic methodology for dealing with critical materials problems which could affect Coast Guard short- and long-range procurements and programs. The study focuses on assessing the nature of critical materials problems as they impact the Coast Guard and on determining what the Coast Guard can do to alleviate such situations and to seize opportunities. Within this general framework, the four specific study objectives are: (1) to develop a workable approach and methodology for recognizing, evaluating, and dealing with Coast Guard critical materials problems and opportunities; (2) to identify critical materials used by the Coast Guard, the shortages of which could have a significant effect on the Coast Guard's ability to perform its assigned and projected missions; (3) to identify future systems or technologies that are expected to grow out of materials shortages, and would indirectly affect Coast Guard missions and programs; and (4) to present and analyze examples of the types of critical materials problems that could arise, assess the significance of the problems, and identify and evaluate alternatives and opportunities for coping with the problems
Morphological analysis of underwater sensing for Coast Guard applications by Charles I Malme ( Book )
3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this study was to survey and explore concepts of underwater and water-related sensing systems and determine the technology appropriate for present and anticipated Coast Guard activities. The procedure employed both a literature study and a survey letter to sensor manufacturers and users to obtain a broad base of representative sensor information. The information was cataloged in a computer file using a classification system which included sensor, environment, and object descriptor groups. Selected Coast Guard activities were considered in detail to determine their general sensor requirements. A computer-aided morphological method was used to analyze the required general sensor operating characteristics and concurrently examine the data base to determine the relevance of existing technology. General recommendations were developed for the application of existing technology and for the development of new technology where indicated. (Author)

Biological effects of oil pollution : a comprehensive bibliography with abstracts by Melvin Light ( Book )
5 editions published between 1978 and 1981 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This bibliography is a compilation of abstracts of literature on the biological effects of oil pollution. Comprehensive coverage is provided on oil spill incidents, toxicity, tainting, behavioral effects, physiological effects, biodegradation, effects of cleaning agents, analyses for petroleum hydrocarbons in tissues and other related topics. Over 1200 references with abstracts are included. Rapid access to and cross-referencing of any given abstract is provided by use of a permuted index that lists alphabetically the keywords and corresponding citation number assigned to each abstract. The bibliography should be a valuable reference tool for oil pollution researchers, environmental scientists, federal, state and municipal planners, administrators and other decision makers. (Author)
A critical technical review of six hazard assessment models by inc Enviro Control ( Book )
6 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report presents a critical, technical review of six simulation models currently being used in connection with the following U.S. Coast Guard research programs: the Vulnerability Model, a simulation system for assessing damage resulting from spills of hazardous chemicals; and CHRIS, the Chemical Hazards Response Information System.

An investigation into safety of passage of large tankers in the Puget Sound area : a supplementary study by W McIlroy ( Book )
2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first phase of the study was conducted in 1977 at the Computer Aided Operations Research Facility to investigate the safety of passage of tankers through the Puget Sound area under maximum credible adverse environmental conditions. The track-keeping results of that phase indicated that all ships were able to navigate safely under the extreme environmental conditions provided they maintained sufficient speed. The failed equipment runs indicated that tug support of ships was required to avoid grounding after suffering steering/propulsion failures. This supplementary study provides data on the transfer and advance of a 400K DWT tanker after a combined steering/propulsion failure under the same conditions as the earlier study. A formula relating tug force to ship tonnage was developed from data derived from the earlier study; computer runs in this study validated that formula. In addition, this supplementary study investigated the use of a rudder tug to control speed and heading of 120K, 165K, and 280K tankers. Corrected sheets for the computational method presented in Volume I of the 1978 report are included. (Author)

Development of chemical hazards response information system (CHRIS) by D. S Allan ( Book )
3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report summarizes the development of the major components of the Chemical Hazards Response Information System (CHRIS). It also describes specific studies that were conducted as part of the CHRIS program during the development phase. The reporting of the development of CHRIS is particularly appropriate at this time since the complete system has only recently been made available to Coast Guard users. The system will be carefully evaluated during the first year that it is in use, and the results of this utilization study will be reported on at a later date

Theoretical study to determine the sea state limit for the survival of oil slicks on the ocean by Phani P. K Raj ( Book )
3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Limiting sea state condition for the globular dispersion of oil slicks on the ocean have been obtained from simple considerations. Models have been derived for determining the conditions under which breaking waves will disperse an oil slick. Two types of dispersions are considered, viz., surface dispersion and globular dispersion within the water column, with emphasis on the latter type of dispersion. The results indicate that a 3 m significant wave height sea state will tend to initiate globular dispersion and that breaking waves of large crest lengths are essential for a surface dispersion to take place. The depth of penetration of globules of oil formed under breaking waves is calculated to be relatively shallow. The large number of assumptions made and their effects on the results are discussed. Several of the unknown physical parameters of importance are identified and recommendations have been made for experimental determination of some of these parameters. (Author)

Deepwater port inspection methods and procedures ( Book )
1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Deepwater Ports Act of 1974 gives the Secretary of the Department of Transportation and, by delegation, the U.S. Coast Guard, specific authority to regulate the design, construction and operation of Deep Water Ports (DWPs) off the coast of the United States. Some of the regulations deal with safety and prevention of oil pollution. This study is one of several providing information for future regulations dealing with pollution. It identifies and assesses inspection methods and procedures for the Oil Transfer System (OTS) of DWPs. Recommendations are made for inspection methods and procedures that would provide an effective means of minimizing accidental oil spills from the OTS of DWPs in U.S. waters. The recommendations were based primarily on a cost-effectiveness analysis for both commonly used and technologically advanced inspection methods and procedures that were considered to provide the best available technology for DWPs in U.S. waters. Inspection methods considered apply primarily to the components of the OTS, onsite, during normal operations and also to components of other systems whose failure could affect the integrity of the OTS. Failure of components and subsystems of the OTS, which contributed most significantly to the risk of oil spills, were identified in a system safety analysis. (Author)
